Another #4thofJuly pic that seemed to resonate with all the pathos in America right now. From @jaethephotog from San Clemente. Code red.

We’re appreciating @gabriellelurie’s joyful #4thOfJuly pix from Alameda in a whole different light after Monday. In praise of peace and innocence.

Quite the statement in front of #SCOTUS on #IndependenceDay. Red, white & blue/black. (📷 @SmileItsNathan @gettyimages #Abortion rights supporter Sam Scarcello)

Another #HighlandPark photo not getting so much attention is this one. In contrast to pix of littered sidewalks, this image of kids in the parade at the moment the shots rang out captures the trauma that lasts a lifetime. (📷 #GinaTroianiSolorio @reuterspictures)
